Building a new home is an exciting opportunity to snap up many of today’s home design trends, enhancing both your living spaces and your lifestyle.
As it’s impossible to incorporate every trend, look for those that serve two purposes – style and function. While style drives many new home trends, the most valuable are those that also solve a long-standing functional problem faced by new home builders (Perth) before you.
Here are some of the top home design trends and solutions for new homes (Perth):
- Convertible rooms
Smarter uses of space are home design trends worth looking into. Convertible rooms are becoming more and more prominent, perhaps because smaller homesites are creating the need to do more with less square meters. Where a sprawling family home isn’t possible, perhaps in the inner city, convertible rooms are a savvy solution. For example, a playroom might become a guest bedroom at night, or a study may transition into a nursery once a new arrival needs its own room.
- Indoor/outdoor living
Given Perth’s Mediterranean climate, it’s little wonder that alfrescos are becoming more and more like an internal living space, both in style and function. Stylishly, outdoor areas often feature plastered or cedar lined ceilings, downlights, Caeserstone bench tops and furniture that wouldn’t look out of place in the internal lounge room. Functionally, it’s not uncommon to find traditionally indoor items now gracing alfrescos, from fridges to ovens and big screen TVs. In connecting indoor and outdoor spaces, sliding doors are giving way to chic bi-fold doors that remove all physical barrier between the interior and exterior of the home.
- Dual key living
With more and more adult children living at home, dual key living is increasing in demand. This trend in new home designs (Perth) gives adult children their own self contained living quarters, accessible via their own private entrance. Once adult children move out, this independent living space can create additional income for the homeowners as an attractive rental space.
- Liveable bathrooms
No longer is the bathroom a place where you ‘get in and get out’. Instead, bathrooms are morphing into places that you want to spend time in, with furniture, feature chandeliers and even funky wallpaper.
While sustainability is a well-worn term, it’s currently creating fresh thinking in regards to interior design. Some of the most trendy living areas are those that incorporate used items that have character and charm, such as salvaged timber, second hand furnishings, recycled pallet coffee tables and the like.
